defense of marriage act which defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman. in california, proposition 8, a voter approved initiative prohibiting same-sex marriage. joining me now to weigh in on what we might expect from the high court is richard socarides former president of equality matters who also served as a senior adviser to president clinton. as always, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> eliot: what is the importance of friday or monday, depending on which day the supreme court announces their decision. >> at the end of this week or on monday, we'll begin to hear from the supreme court what they're going to decide this term in relation to gay marriage and gay rights. we're almost assuredly in for a big decision from the supreme court by the end of this term. we may as early as monday, hear that they have decided not to accept for review, the all-important proposition 8 case in california. if that happens that means that in california, same-sex marriage would be legal again as early as ne
, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result

was stuck in california. had to work. david: do you like it? charles: i'm learning it, 50/50, but the service was terrible. stuart: anything positive from charles payne about microsoft is again pulling teeth. president obama's first fiscal cliff meeting starts in the next hour. labor leaders and left-leaning advocacy groups are in attendance. are any of them calling for us to go over the cliff? i have an answer for that in a moment. stuart: a little more than a half hour from now, president obama meets with union leaders and leftist activists about the fiscal cliff. rich edson is at the white house. all right, rich, are any of these people attending these meetings, this meeting today, are any of them saying yeah, go over the cliff, big tax increases and big spending cuts, that's what we want, anybody there saying that? rich: stuart, there is representation from the center on budget and policy priorities. a couple of months ago this group released a report saying if democrats and policymakers could not get concessions on tax increases and other concessions, then it would be
